My Ride: E46 Sedan
LED Tails on a Sedan? Yes or No?

So I've been debating over whether to get these for a while now (the bimmian model), just because I love the LED tails on those coupes and verts, but I've never seen an actual shot of them on a sedan. Now I know the shape of the sedan taillights are a bit taller than the coupes/verts and I wasn't sure how the end result would look on my sedan. I figure I'll smoke them as well. I was hoping that all of you fanatics with led sedans would post their pics. Thanks alot for any of your input!

I don't have the ones you are talking about, but I do have red/clear/red LED tails on my sedan. I have lots of pictures in this thread - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=470911

I think they look a lot better than the red/clear ones. There should be some pictures of red/clear sedan LED tails in the showroom.

LED's look sweet on sedans. I don't know what some of you are looking at, lol. Though I will say that the Red/White/Red non-LED's looked great on my car. It added distict separation in the slightly taller rear profile of E46 Sedans. But come on, it's not like the Coupe lines & profile is "that" much better suited for LED's. Heck, 95% of people looking at a sedan/coupe couldn't tell much difference other than the lack of 2 rear doors. Aficianado's like us can tell and that's about it.

But, in the end, I humbly respect everyone's opinions. LED's for everyone.
